This article will show you how to restore your photos and user account in case they are deleted by Instagram. This can be really frustrating and you might not even know what’s going on. Currently, you might be in two different situations. The first one is that maybe one or more of your Instagram posts have disappeared and you don’t know why. This either happens when you temporarily deactivate your account and later reactivate it or right after posting a photo.
The second situation that you could be in is that Instagram without any apparent reasons has deleted some of your photos. Worry not! By the end of this article, you’ll be able to solve this problem and get your account and photos back.
How to get your account and photos back in case they are deleted by Instagram
The easiest way to get all of your photos back is to report the problem back to Instagram and tell them that you’ve made no mistake. But first, you have to be sure that you haven’t done anything to violate Instagram’s terms so that you could have a chance of getting your account and photos back.
Why Instagram has deleted your account or photos?
There are a few reasons. The first reason why this might happen is because of a bug. When there is a bug in the app, it can cause all kinds of problems. “Bug” is a failure in the system that causes unexpected issues. Therefore; the Instagram app in some cases may be the culprit behind your problem.
So what can be done in such cases?
1. Wait for the photos to come back
When your photos suddenly disappear, the first thing you should do is simply wait for them to come back. Since you didn’t do anything to get your photos deleted, the best thing you can do is to wait for them to come back. If you’ve violated Instagram’s terms and conditions, you shouldn’t be surprised if your posts are deleted. Conversely if there was absolutely nothing wrong with your posts, you should wait for Instagram to restore them to your page. If this has just recently happened to you, wait for a few days; and afterwards if your posts are not restored, report your issue to Instagram.
2. Access your Instagram account via web browsers
To check if your photos have actually been deleted and this isn’t just a problem with the Instagram app or your phone, you should try accessing your account through a web browser; and then check if your photos have been deleted. If they are gone then contact Instagram.
3. Update your Instagram app
Since these unexpected problems mainly happen due to a bug, the best thing you can do to try and mitigate the issue would be to update your Instagram app. If you look at the features of an update, you’ll usually see some bug fixes. If Instagram receives a lot of complaints similar to your problem, they’ll release an update to address the relevant bug.
